Season 17 of Grey’s Anatomy pulled out all the stops, from bringing back past characters to putting us all in our feelings, saying goodbye to some of our long-time favorite characters, and of course, all things COVID. However, this season looked a little bit different from the past seasons of Grey’s, which didn’t stop it from being yet another great season. With that being said, I would be lying if I said that I didn’t have high hopes and expectations for the finale.
Here are some of the things we’re looking forward to:
Jo adopting Luna
Jo Wilson has gone through so many traumatic events in her life that I would LOVE to see her finally get a storyline that doesn’t end with heartbreak. I feel like that starts with her adopting Luna. In the earlier part of the season, we learned that Luna’s mom Val had to deliver Luna at 26-weeks due to pregnancy complications. After delivering Luna, Val underwent surgery to correct some things that occurred during the pregnancy, sadly passing away two days later.
The Maggie and Winston Wedding
Even though this season had its fair share of sad moments, It also had some really happy moments, like the engagement of Maggie and Winston. This was honestly probably one of the happiest moments of the season (aside from Meredith waking up, of course!) I feel like it would only be fitting that we end the season on a happy note!
As I previously mentioned, since this show is a medical drama, we knew going into it that COVID would more than likely be the main focus of this season. However, since the beginning of the season, we have already seen a drastic improvement in Covid cases across the country. I would like to see more doctors giving and receiving the COVID vaccines since those have become more available. I feel like If we saw more of these “light at the end of the tunnel” moments, if you will, it would set up a more “normal” Grey’s storyline for next season.
Meredith Grey Back in The OR
I don’t even remember the last time I saw Meredith Grey in the OR. Since Meredith spent the more significant part of the season in a coma caused by Covid-19 complications, It seems like it has been forever since she picked up a scalpel. Now that Meredith is one the road to a full recovery I would love to see her make an appearance in the OR even if it is for just a brief surgery.
More Character Returns
This is probably the most unlikely to happen out of all these, but a girl can dream, right? This season brought back so many of our favorite characters, such as Derek, Mark, Lexie, April, and George. I would love to see Addison Montgomery return as a mentor for Jo Wilson since she is now an OB resident? I would also love to see Arizona Robbins return for work purposes or Maggie and Winston’s wedding.
